This is a 1984 oil on canvas by the artist Othelo Pardiru (not Pardini),a Brazilian artist that is not a listed or known artist internationally,but that does not mean this is without value. The title of the painting is Melao E Abacaxi, which mean Melons and Pineapples.The painting has a current value of $800.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
